    LOG: Getting strong with the help of LGD-4033/SARM S4 stack!

    Hello!

    24K and sarms1.com were generous enough to let me log their LGD-4033 and SARM S4 - even though I haven't yet "proved" myself on this specific board. Thanks for giving me that opportunity, I'll try to do my best with this log!

    A few words about me, my training, diet and goals to get this log started:

    Me:

    Many of you probably don't know me as I haven't been here for long. However, some of you may recognize me from other boards like AM, PHF and UK-Muscle.

    I'm 24 years old wannabe powerlifter from Europe. I've trained since 2008 and I turned to the "dark side" last autumn - been only using low doses so far. After I heard that I was selected to log this stack, I dropped all other compounds so right now I'm just on 200mgs of test per week. I'll start SDMZ2.0 on 4th of February too to get ready for my next meet.

    I've only done just one meet before - because of minor injuries I was only able to do deadlift there. I pulled 480lbs @ 179.5lbs there.. Wasn't really happy with my result and I knew that if I want to be really competitive some day, I need to get my squat and bench up too. That's when I started to work with a coach.

    My training looks like this right now:

    1. squat + bench + assistance work
    2. rest or HIIT cardio
    3. deadlift (every other week heavy deadlift and every other week light speed/form work) + bench + assistance work
    4. rest or HIIT cardio
    5. squat + bench + assistance work
    6. bodybuilding for lats, biceps, delts and calves
    7. rest or HIIT cardio

    However, I've had some serious problems with tendons of my both biceps so I'll probably do bench press only once a week for next week or few and not go as heavy on bench as I'd usually go. I don't want to get injured.

    Diet:

    I can eat pretty much anything without putting on too much weight so I don't have any diet set on stone. However, I have few things that I'll eat every day. Example of my training day's diet looks like this (and this is also a goal diet for training days):

    1. 250 grams of quark, 900 grams of yoghurt, 10 grams of peanuts
    2. Intra workout drink (2.25dl of maltodextrin and 9 grams of BCAA's)
    3. Post workout shake (1.25dl of whey protein and 1.25dl of maltodextrin)
    4. 100 grams of whole grain rice, 200 grams of chicken/beef/salmon, 4dl of milk, 10 grams of peanuts
    5. 4 slices of dark, bread, 3 boiled eggs, butter, ham, vegetables, 4dl of milk, 10 grams of peanuts
    6. 100 grams of whole grain rice, 200 grams of chicken/beef/salmon, 4dl of milk, 10 grams of peanuts
    7. 250 grams of quark, 900 grams of yoghurt, 10 grams of peanuts

    Many of you may wonder "why so much carbs?" Well, because I can! I don't put on weight easily and high carbs makes me love every minute in the gym. On rest days I eat the same except no malto, no BCAA's and no whey protein so 210 grams less carbs and 40ish grams less protein.

    Goals for LGD-4033/SARM S4 stack:


    I train primarily for strength, not for size. However, I'll compete in 181lbs weight class and now I weight about 175lbs so gaining few pounds (and maybe losing some bodyfat) during the process would be great.

    Let's get this started guys. I'll soon update here my last few workouts so you'll see what my training is all about.

    Day 1

    Workout:


    - Bench press
    5x45lbs
    5x90lbs
    5x130lbs
    4x150lbs
    2 sets of 3 @ 180lbs
    2x200lbs......

    - Squat
    5x110lbs
    5x185lbs
    4x220lbs
    2 sets of 3 @ 260lbs
    5 sets of 2 @ 295lbs

    I had to stop it there. I was supposed to do 9 sets of 2 @ 200-235lbs on bench and plenty of front squats, good mornings, weighted dips and DB flyes but pain in my bicep tendons became too intense... They have pained me for almost a month now and it's making me angry.

    Here is my gameplan to fix my arms:

    - I'll be taking 400mgs of ibuprofen three times per day for week or so
    - I'll be applying Voltaren Forte twice per day for week or so
    - I will NOT do bench press or any assistance work for it for at least 2 weeks
    - I will not do front squat, weighted chin-ups
    - I will not do any direct bicep work
    - I will train upper body with high reps and minimal rest between sets in order to minimize stressing my bicep tendons.

    Hopefully I'll be able to train upper body hard in 2 weeks. I'm just tired of this pain so taking a break for upper body training is only sensible thing to do at this point.

    Other notes: appetite has been great today!

    Day 3


    Morning weight: 177lbs (+2lbs)

    Training session: deadlift speed work

    - Deadlift without belt, overhand grip with no straps
    3x155lbs
    3x200lbs
    3x245lbs
    2 sets of 2 @ 295lbs
    4 sets of 2 @ 340lbs

    - DB lunges
    5 sets of 5 @ 22's

    Nice and easy. Speed was great even though I pulled with overhand grip without straps. I'm easily stronger in deadlifts than I've ever been before. If I can pull 5x485lbs next week (that would be personal best, +5lbs and +4 reps), I'll sign up to a meet.

    Back pump was intense once again. I forgot to add taurine to my intraworkout drink. Legs were pumped even though I didn't train them - I do lunges only because I feel that they speed up my recovery from heavy squats and deadlifts.

    Arms are feeling good. Deadlifts didn't feel bad at all.

    Tomorrow will be rest day with few minutes of HIT (won't report it here if it doesn't feel special somehow) and I'll squat on Saturday - I'll do some assistance work too. Hopefully I'll manage to videotape it for you guys.

    Thanks! Gotta work my bench and squat to the same level but that will take years of hard work. My body loves carbs... Every workout is great when glycogen storages are full!

    Day 4

    Morning weight: 178lbs (+3lbs)

    No gym today, just HIIT.

    I may need to reconsider my plans to compete in 181lbs weight class. I seem to put on weight pretty fast right now... I'm sure that I'll get up to 198lbs class in the future as I'm way too skinny to 181lbs weight class so I could as well do it this spring?

    BTW, I measured my waist today. It's 33.8". I've lost 1.5 inches in the last few months while gaining lean mass and strength.
